Chicken Lettuce Wraps


This is a great recipe for using up leftovers! I had some roasted chicken from the other night and these lettuce wraps were a perfect way to use it up. You can get creative with the filling and basically use whatever you want. I think this recipe is really meant to serve as an example of a fun way to spruce up leftovers for lunch the next day: there’s no need for exact measurements- just assemble with what you have!

Simple, healthy and tasty way to use up leftovers!
Recipe type: Lunch
Cuisine: Amercan
  • Leftover roasted chicken, shredded
  • Guacamole
  • Veggies of choice, I used shredded carrots
  • Sauce of choice: I used Cholula and Tessemae's Zesty Ranch
  • Salt
  • Iceberg lettuce
  1. Trim the bottom off the iceberg lettuce so that you can pull the whole leaves off easily.
  2. Toss the chicken and veggies in a bowl with your desired sauce, plus some salt.
  3. You can add a little EVOO as well if you want and a squeeze of lemon.
  4. Lay out a lettuce leaf, spread about 1 Tbl of Guac in the center of the leaf,
  5. Add about ¼ - ⅓ cup of filling. If the leaf is too full the filling will spill out.
  6. Now, fold the leaf up like a burrito- roll and tuck the edges in.
  7. Enjoy!
  8. I made 4 rolls for myself for lunch.
